I decided to join the forum finally. I was looking at Subaru's before I left for boot camp back in October and now that I'm done boot camp I'm looking to buy myself one. Trying to close a deal on a 2004 Silver WRX that has a little bit of high mileage at 24,000 miles but runs well and is priced in my range. Hoping for the best. If there are any Coast Guard Forum members give me a message. I'm stationed on the US Coast Guard Cutter Spencer out of Boston and report to ISC Boston this coming tuesday. Happy to be aboard the forum.
